The Aaron Copland Fund for Music – Performance Fund

This grant program’s objective is to support performing and presenting organizations with non-profit tax exempt status whose artistic excellence encourages and improves public knowledge and appreciation of serious contemporary American music. Funds are available for General Operating Support for professional performing ensembles and presenting organizations with a history of substantial commitment to contemporary American music and with plans to continue that commitment. The program also provides Project Support for exceptionally important activities relating to contemporary American music proposed by professional performing ensembles and presenting organizations that do not normally feature contemporary American music in their programming.
